I have a baritone voice with a rich tone in mid range, with good depth and width.
I perform material that my voice is suited to, which is predominantly Jazz, Swing and Musicals. I have also performed classical, rock 'n' roll, standards and a little 'pop'.
Will shortly be performing cabaret and production shows in Herts, Bucks and Beds for agent and production company.
I currently perform one-man shows both day-time, in day centres, community centres, care homes and residential homes. And some evenings doing cabaret, weddings and functions, mostly jazz/swing.
My repertoire is vast, including material from numerous stage/screen musicals. There aren't many shows that I haven't done a song from. I do the musicals either as a straight cabaret act or with costume changes as part of the show, playing each character.
I have three different 'musicals' shows, along with a Rat Pack show, a Crooners & Swingers show, a Big Band sound, A Tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes, a Dean Martin show, an End Of The Pier, a Christmas with the Crooners and a Mixed Bag, for which clients choose a selection of some or all of the shows, or respect something specific for me to learn.
Performed a one-man Rat Pack show tour for Production company in London and Home Counties in July 2013 (30 shows)
also, previously as vocalist for a jazz/swing quartet 'Swing For Your Supper' and solo jazz/swing singer, before which I performed as vocalist for a late fifties/early sixties rock n roll in a tribute band (mostly Cliff & The Shadows tunes from that era with some of the standard rock n roll tunes like 'Blue Suede Shoes, Twenty Flight Rock, Mean Woman Blues etc' )
Theatre shows include Little Shop Of Horrors (Dentist), Me & My Girl (Bill), My Fair Lady (Freddy), Buddy Holley Story (Big Bopper). As well as performing in cabarets and showcases.
